Friday Finds: Outdoor Rugs

The weather is pretty ugly here today, but I'm still on a mission to fix up our balcony. My latest compulsive search has been all about outdoor rugs and, once again, RugsUSA.com comes to the rescue with their 50-80% off summer sale!
The walls of our balcony are an icky tan color and the rails are hunter green. I was trying to decide if I wanted to ignore them, or work with them. Then, I figured I should at least try to work with what I had before I pretended they were invisible. So here are my picks toward my effort at being collaborative.

Tan on tan...can go wrong here.

Tan and green...a little matchy matchy, but it works.

Tan and navy blue...a little contrast definitely couldn't hurt.
Not bad, but, thinking about all of that tan made me remember that I'm not a fan of tan...at all. I should, also, mention that I've decided to go with these chairs in white. I haven't actually gotten them yet, but they are pretty much directing my design plan.
IKEA PS VÅGÖ Easy chair IKEA The materials in this outdoor furniture require no maintenance. Easy to keep clean; simply wipe with a damp cloth.
So, I decided to ignore the walls and rails and looked for a few options that would play nice with the chairs. These are my favorites.
Fab Habitat Earth Venice Cream Rug
Love this one, but the hubs wouldn't let this one make off the UPS truck.

I can't tell if this is black or blue, but it's a good alternative to the pink.
Rugs USA Hacienda Lattice Trellis Outdoor Green Rug
An outdoor version of my favorite rug...could you ask for better?
Serendipity 2453 Blue Rug
Except for this. I think it's a good match for the super modern chairs and would be a great distraction from the world of boring that would structurally surround it. I like it. I like it a lot.
What do you guys think? Would you consider the tan...or ignore it?
Xoxo,

  1. I actually really like the last rug too. It goes great with the Vago chairs and doesn't clash with the hunter green. The chairs are super modern and super low, so it should be a nice little "60's conversation pit" mod moment! I also love what you did with the string lights. Such a great idea with the pole. I can't wait to see it finished!
